Lomage is Delectable
The co-inventor of Lorraine Cheese developed a new cheese, Lomage, that is creamy, nutty and has a delicate texture. Dave Grigsby and his father Charley received a patent for their innovative work. Dave explained that there is nothing like Lomage. It tastes like the best Swiss ever, but melts like Mozzarella. Customers rave that Lomage tastes great cool or hot. “Unlike other cheeses, when Lomage melts, you get more flavor. I love it!” It is great on sandwiches, especially Lomage on Reuben!

Working with his father at an early age, Dave quickly learned from his father's days at Kraft Foods. "I learned both the Art and Science behind making high quality cheese" Dave stated. When asked why the interest in cheese, he replied "It's in my blood. They say that cheese is addictive, and maybe that is why I find it so fascinating to make something so delicious." Having tasted cheese from around the world, Dave learned about the appetizing flavors that cheese can provide.
